Most of you have probably heard of the big (massive!) party taking place every year at Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro to celebrate the New Year. The most famous Brazilian réveillon (as it is known the New Year’s Eve) offers options for all tastes and budgets. From the free open air party at the beach to exclusive and pricey private parties. You will find some details in English at Concerts and fireworks make up New Year’s Eve in Rio; plan to be there and the full line-up at Rio’s official tourism website: Events calendar: réveillon.
Always bear in mind that while partying in Rio during the New Year doesn’t need to be a costly event, finding decent and affordable accommodation for the period is quite a different story.
